Saturday, March 23, 2013. I just got handed a pass for a visit with my family tomorrow at 11 AM. I had no idea they were coming to see me until they gave me the pass. My mom said that she was sending me a jpay letter to inform me before going on vacation, and… Read More

Friday, March 22, 2013. I was sweating bullets this morning waiting for a guard to come unlock my cell on time to go get my monthly medication. They were 15 minutes late, but I still made it there in enough time. It’s not fulfilling my pass to get my medication that so much of a concern,… Read More

Thursday, March 21, 2013. So much violence in here, so many lost souls, I can only thank God for watching over me and protecting me, for I know without a doubt I too would be lost. Nothing has happened to me; I just noticed so much drama going on around me in the very small… Read More

Wednesday, March 20, 2013. I saw on the news that there was a big fire in Gatlinburg Tennessee that burned down a bunch of cabins on a hilltop.  My parents own a beautiful cabin in that area. I certainly hope it wasn’t part of the fire, and if it was, they probably don’t even know… Read More

Tuesday, March 19, 2013. Lately I’ve been running into more and more people I know from the County jail. Whether it’s in the hallways or the chalice they normally holler my name or grabbed my attention some other way. The most popular of comments from them is how much weight they can see I’ve lost;… Read More

Monday, March 18, 2013. I saw some of the UD campus riot on the news last night. Looked like one heck of a St. Patrick’s Day party. The students called it a 44 everyone gathered in the streets at 4 AM a 40 ounce of beer. Many of the students were throwing bottles at police cars,… Read More

Sunday, March 17, 2013. Yesterday I think I may have sprained my foot well jogging. I decided to jog again today and power through pain. I can’t stand the thought of slacking off. But, my foot hurts so bad I could barely make it through my full hour. I wish I knew more about whether… Read More

Saturday, March 16, 2013. Every three months, a locally owned cookie company donates cookies to the prison. Each inmate gets one bag of about a dozen cookies. I tried one and quickly gave the rest of mind to my cellmate. I’m not sure if it’s this healthy lifestyle choice, or the flavor of the cookies,… Read More

Friday, March 15, 2013. I have completely cut noodles out of my diet. Along with many other high sodium, high calorie, and sugary foods, I’ve made a lot of drastic changes to accommodate my new and improved choices to live a healthier way of life all across the board. I’m so hooked on working out… Read More

Thursday, March 14, 2013. I can’t believe that they’re calling off the air show this year for lack of funding. You would think that they would make enough of a profit from selling tickets and through concession stands. My family usually attends the airshow every year, they will be very disappointed, especially my grandfather, who… Read More

Wednesday, March 13, 2013 Well, another day has passed and I’m a little bothered that I allowed a bunch of bugs to ruin my whole day yesterday. My entire day was consumed with frustration.

Tuesday, March 12, 2013. I’m so frustrated by the infestation of cockroaches right now that I can hardly even think about anything else today. Everything seems to be bothering me right now. This morning I started to organize some of my folders with paperwork in my locker box. From underneath of everything I started moving… Read More
